Set general audit logging facility

Specify the syslog facility to use for logging general adclient activity. You can separately enable syslog facilities for logging general adclient messages, adclient auditing messages, and adnisd messages.

Select a value for this group policy from the list box, which contains a list of valid syslog facilities, for example, auth, authpriv, daemon, security, user, local n, and so on. The available facilities may vary depending on the operating system. The default value is auth.

This group policy modifies the logger.facility.* setting in the agent configuration file.

Rather than using the policy to set the facility, you can edit the agent configuration file to set the logger.facility parameter to any valid syslog facility. For example, you can set this parameter to log messages to one of auth, authpriv, daemon, security, localn facilities and so on.

You may also edit he agent configuration file to specify other process names for logging, or use an asterisk (*) to specify the default facility to use for all agent processes. For example, you can specify logger.facility.*: auth in the configuration file to direct all agent processes send messages to the auth facility of syslog.
